I finally went to church on Sunday. It takes some effort to get there even though I know I'll love it when I get there. That's mostly because I'm always uber tired on weekends with those crazy 11 hour days. Sucky days. Never you mind. I saw one of my Hamptonians there and she invited me to her cookout that afternoon. I would ordinarily be on the phone talking my face off or knocked out. I took a 45-minute nap, then dragged, and I mean DRAGGED myself out of bed. It was pitiful! Lol. I was SO tired. I went to the homie's house and met 2 other Hamptonians who are living in the burgh.
We started talking about G.reek life (oh for those who aren't clear, those are fr.aternities and sororiti.es). There were 2 girls there who were Z.etas and got so excited when I said I was an S.GRho. I didn't get it. We didn't have any beef on campus but there wasn't any org outside of our own that we got excited about. But they went to P.itt and there's definitely a different G.reek dynamic on predominately white campuses vs. HBCUs. This will sound awful but they seem happy to see another black person. Perhaps it should be like that but it was never that excitable for us. Lol.
Anyway they're talking about g.reeks and I tell my affiliation and one of the Hampton girls says, "Do you remember that one who stepped by herself and killed it?" I said, "Yeah, that was me." I did a one-woman step show for a myriad of reasons I'd rather not get into. Yes, I knew what I was doing and I turned that show out! Lol. Come on now! Would I do less? Negative. But then she and the other two Hamptonians, all three of whom graduated in 2007, say, "That was you??" I say, "Yes..." "WOW!! That was amazing! People still talk about that! They say, 'You remember when that one S.GRho stepped and KILLED it?' They always say that, 'And killed it.' You're like a legend!" A legend!?!? I've been gone 4 years! I was on the floor! Hilarity!!
I was also looking at the yearbook from their senior year. I saw my line sister in there! Hahahaha. She was in a sorority pic. I was like, "Heeeey L.S.!" Lol. Then I felt old because I didn't know any of the Q.ues and we used to roll with them-- not me and my line sister, me and my other homies because they were very cool and fun to hang with. I knew just about everybody when I was there but I didn't know any of the g.reeks when I was looking at the yearbook and could only pick out a few faces. I was like I'M SO OLD!! Lol. But they asked me to go out with them Thursday night. I was thinking, "OF COURSE I FIND SOME PEOPLE TO HANG WITH A MONTH BEFORE I LEAVE! WHY NOT!?" Hahahahaha. I'm okay with that, though. As long as I get to leave! 21 more days of work, people! 21!! Ow! Lookin' good!
